etting off on a horse matched to your ability and accompanied by a team of expert caballeros, you will be riding old cattle-driving routes and bridle ways – paths carefully chosen by George. These are tracks that aren’t open to the public, so you’ll soon say goodbye to cars and indeed people.
Before long, you’ll be immersed in the sights, sounds, smells and raw beauty of this untouched natural park – an extraordinary landscape of rich biodiversity.
There will be oak and cork trees, dramatic and sometime spiky undergrowth, unbelievably colourful wild flowers (if you join us in Spring), birds of prey (among them, eagles, griffon and black vultures, flycatchers and bee-eaters) red and fallow deer, wild boar and, if you are lucky, the Iberian lynx (one of the rarest cats in the world). Time will slow and, with luck, you’ll forget all about the racing demands of the 21st Century.
While there will be elements we can predict, equally there will be those we cannot. This is because we want your experience to be unique – to be open to adventure and serendipity.
So there will be moments when we offer you the opportunity to choose which fork in the path to take. In this way, you’ll have the chance to shape your journey rather than be led on some pre-determined route like an average tourist experience.
